“Twilight” Cryogenic Canister Prop
Sci-Fi piece for the acclaimed short film ‘Twilight’. This prop had to be totally convincing for the climax of the film.
It featured a mechanized open, display lights and mist burst. The main body was cut from PVC pipe, sanded, filled and then assembled with the hinged cover. The lighting electrics were fitted then removed for final surface finish in brushed metal.
The piece worked beautifully on the shoot day, the action was an actor pulling the canister from a rucksack then switching it on, lights came on in sequence and the canister opens with a puff of mist, soft blue light emits from either end of the chamber.
